Our passion for authentic, responsible, life-changing and budget-friendly travel experiences is what sets us apart from the rest. With us, you’ll travel with friends, leave with family, and see Ethiopia in a way you never thought possible.
GET TO KNOW US
We started Backpack Ethiopia in 2015 because we wanted to show people the side of Ethiopia that not everyone gets to see. Through our work, we have been lucky enough to travel around the country and work with people who took us to less known places and shared things that we would never have experienced on our own. We felt there was a space to create these unique travel experiences with a personal, human touch for all other travelers who come to Ethiopia.
The best way to get to know us and our unique style of travel is by getting in touch with us. We would love to get to know you and partner with you to design the ultimate itinerary. Contact us to start your own journey.
WHAT WE DO
We have currently paused all activities as there are no travelers currently. We will be resuming our services as the country starts opening up its doors to incoming travelers. We truly don't know what to expect in the coming weeks, and as such we seek your support to be able to enter our next phases with a little bit of security.
To support Backpack Ethiopia and our Hostel 'Mad vervet Hostel', we are accepting donations. If you are interested in the different perks available go to our support page.
